This election was different. OUr country was really split and it really was a close vote. The Florida thing is embarassing, but that could happen anywhere.
Did Chrieten win in a landslide ? I'm sure if it was a close vote there may be controversy.
Every US election I remember has crowned the President-elect almost instantly. It's easy to make fun of the US right now, but it's still the greatest country in the world, imho.
As for election changes, I think they should award the presidency to the guy with the most popular votes, but only if he's a democrat.
